Lovely blooms just glow in the evenings so are wonderful for your moonlight gardens. I would call it a very very pale blue or off white with a blue blush.

This is a first year bloom for Glacier Point here, and I'm impressed! My pictures do not do justice to the pale pastel colors of the flowers. Stems are usually covered with blooms at once, and the effect is very nice. Mr. Tasco is to be commended for this beauty. The information below is taken from the AIS Check List database.

(Richard Tasco, R. 1997), Sdlg. 93-38-08. TB, 38" (97 cm), EM "Lightly ruffled very pale blue self, aging white; beards pale violet at end, white center section, tangerine in throat, with violet horn. Classy Chassy X Art School Angel. Superstition 1998".
